Consultation-workshop on open-source hardware and RISC-V

On behalf of the European Commission the three industry associations AENEAS, ARTEMIS-IA, and EPoSS will organise a consultation-workshop on open-source hardware and RISC-V for its members on June 17. The consultation workshop aims to investigate research challenges on open-source hardware that could be included as Work Programme topics in the first calls of the Joint Undertaking "Key Digital Technologies" (KDT JU). (currently planned successor of ECSEL). This workshop is a first step in a process that will ultimately lead to a concrete roadmap for strengthening the European open-source hardware ecosystem. Interested experts should contact one of the offices of the three associations.

Mourning for Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Rosenstiel

Tübingen/Hanover - We mourn the passing of our long-standing chairman of the board, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Rosenstiel. Since its foundation in September 2001 as a board member and since October 2005 as chairman of the board, he has played a decisive role in shaping the edacentrum with the greatest commitment and skill, achieving impressive successes in close cooperation with politics, science and industry. With Prof. Rosenstiel, microelectronics has lost a personality who is also internationally outstanding. We will continue to profit from his work for a very long time. We will miss him and always remember him with gratitude.

Supervisory board, management board, members and employees of edacentrum e.V.
